Experiment and learn new ways of drawing!
This printing workshop allows you to draw directly onto aluminium plates. The incised image is then bitten into the plate, allowing you to create expressive tonal areas as well as creating shadows and depth. In this workshop you will learn how to make and register 2-plate prints, using two different methods; there will be drypoint plate followed by aquatint on an aluminium.
The advantage of using aluminium is that the mordant is far safer than traditionally used, and the easy to clean inks make this a very accessible and enjoyable workshop.
In the afternoon have fun using the press with a choice of papers and experimenting with different ways of inking up your plate, making each print unique.
All materials will be provided as well as step by step guidance.
Please note: If you are pregnant the workshop will be limited to the dry-point component only.
